From the 1920s through the 1940s, Kenmore was known for good food, but also for “good times,” which sometimes gave Kenmore a questionable reputation. During Prohibition, whisky was floated to Kenmore’s shores, and found its way into some restaurants, roadhouses, and dance halls along Bothell Way, commonly known as “bottle clubs.” Rumors still circulate of tunnels where illegal liquor was secretly stashed. Today, Kenmore has many tasty (and legal) options for feasting and imbibing, including three brewpubs in close proximity along this walk:

Nine Yards Brewing, 7324 NE 175th St, Suite A: “Great beer you can settle into.” Lots of menu choices, big screens, game nights, growlers.

Cairn Brewing, 7204 NE 175th St: “A true neighborhood brewery.” Dog- and family-friendly taproom. communal tables and an outdoor beer garden (with sun or shade options).

192 Brewing, 7324 NE 175th St, Suite F: “Probably the smallest brewery in Washington, definitely the first legal one in Kenmore.” Blues jams, local brewer’s nights, taco Tuesdays, trivia nights, open mics.
